Can I Use an Airsoft Gun for Self-Defense?

< All Topics

Another common question we are asked is if Airsoft Guns are able to be used as self-defence, and the answer is yes. First, although airsoft guns come with an orange tip at the end of the barrel, many people are unaware of it and might mistake it for a real firearm. This may scare them away or deter them from harming you. While an airsoft gun is not able to exert the amount of damage as a regular firearm, if you need to protect yourself, it could be your best option. Note that if you’re looking for an airsoft gun to use as self-defence, you may want to stay away from spring-powered ones because you would have to keep firing, therefore wasting time you may not have.
